BILLINGS -

A Big Sky Elementary 6th Grade Teacher was shocked when KULR-8 walked through his classroom doors on Friday.

Shawn Fritzler was recognized for his outstanding skills as a teacher and the ability to motivate students. Fritzler was nominated by the parents of a former student because of his caring teaching techniques and interest in the student's growth.

"Not that you need recognition, but it just really, getting the award, I guess it makes you, you finally get to hear that what you're doing is making a difference," said Mr. Fritzler.

Fritzler has been teaching at Big Sky for just under a decade. He plans to use the money awarded from Gold Star on supplies for classroom science experiments.
